What is sleeve gastrectomy?
A sleeve gastrectomy is a medical weight loss surgery that reduces the size of your stomach. There are three main types of gastrectomy:
- Partial gastrectomy – a certain portion of the stomach is removed
- Full gastrectomy – the full stomach is removed
- Sleeve gastrectomy – the left side of the stomach is removed
During the sleeve gastrectomy for weight loss, the stomach is stapled and the remaining area is removed, leaving a smaller stomach size that limits the amount of food you can eat at one time. In turn, a sleeve gastrectomy helps patients lose weight and keep it off long-term. Sleeve gastrectomy is performed at the Weight Loss and Wellness Center and can help you overcome obesity as well as other weight-related health issues.
Why is sleeve gastrectomy used?
In addition to helping a patient lose weight, sleeve gastrectomy can be used to treat the following weight-related health conditions:
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Type 2 diabetes
- Obesity and depression
- Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)
What does sleeve gastrectomy involve?
At the Weight Loss and Wellness Center, we take the time to explain the entire gastrectomy procedure to each of our patients. We are dedicated to ensuring that you are comfortable and confident with the knowledge and support that you need before, during and after your sleeve gastrectomy surgery.
During the sleeve gastrectomy procedure, your surgeon will remove a small, vertical portion of the stomach that resembles a sleeve and is about the size and shape of a banana. Using a stapling device, the remaining portion of your stomach is closed off.
After your procedure, your physician will spend time walking you through the different lifestyle changes that you’ll need to adapt to the new size of your stomach.
Your doctor may recommend one or more of the following additional weight loss support and treatment options following your gastrectomy procedure:
- Clinical weight management
- Nutritional counseling
- Weight loss support groups
